NAME         top

       yum - Yellowdog Updater Modified shell

SYNOPSIS         top

       yum shell [filename]

DESCRIPTION         top

       yum includes an interactive shell for conducting multiple commands or
       sets of commands during a single execution of yum. These commands can
       be issued manually or passed to yum from a file. The commands are
       much the same as the normal yum command line options. See here yum(8)
       for that information. There are a few additional commands documented

                 [argument] [value]
                 args: debuglevel, errorlevel, obsoletes, gpgcheck,
              assumeyes, exclude
                   If no value is given it prints the current value.
                   If value is given it sets that value.

                 [argument] [option]
                   list: lists repositories and their status
                   enable: enable repositories. option = repository id
                   disable: disable repositories. option = repository id

                   list: lists the contents of the transaction
                   reset: reset (zero-out) the transaction
                   solve: run the dependency solver on the transaction
                   run: run the transaction

Examples         top

       The following are examples of using the yum shell.

               list available packagename*
               groupinfo 'Some Group'
               install foo
               remove bar
               update baz

              That will list available packages matching the glob
              'packagename*'.  It will return information on the group 'Some
              Group' It will then queue the following commands into  the
              transaction: install foo, remove bar, update baz. Then the
              'run' command will resolve dependencies for the transaction
              commands and run the transaction.
